Gosho Quote for October 2019 

Reply to the Wife of Ueno

 (Ueno ama gozen-gohenji)

The Lotus Sutra teaches that the hands used to hold it immediately will enter Buddhahood, and the mouth that chants the Daimoku instantly will become enlightened. This is similar to the moon’s reflection on the surface of the water as it rises above the eastern mountains, or a sound and its resonance occurring simultaneously. The sutra states, “Among those who hear this Law, there is not one who shall not attain enlightenment.” This passage means that if there are a hundred or even a thousand people who embrace this sutra, all will become Buddhas without exception.

 (Gosho, p. 1574)
